Ibanez LB1 Lari Basilio, Violet
Overview by GAK
The Ibanez LB1 is a collaboration between the esteemed Japanese manufacturer and leading guitarist Lari Basilio. Lari is at the forefront of the new wave of instrumental rock virtuosos and her signature model reflects her incredible playing style. Featuring an alder body, roasted birdseye maple neck, signature Lari Basilio pickups and a spellbinding violet finish - this is an instrument that oozes style and sophistication.
The Ibanez LB-1 is a high-performance machine that blends the best aspects of a modern and classic instrument. Featuring a beautiful ergonomic design, Super All Access neck joint (that provides unhindered access to the higher frets) and compound radius fretboard, the LB-1 is an effortless joy to play.
Equipped with a versatile S-S-H pickup configuration, dyna-mix 9 switching system (which gives you 9 distinct tones to choose from) and stunning custom-wound Seymour Duncan pickups, the LB1 can pull off a wide range of tones and styles with ease.
This is a pro-grade workhorse instrument that’ll excel on stage or in a studio setting. The neck boasts Ibanez’s S-Tech treatment, which promotes durability, stability and resistance to changes in temperature. The Ibanez LB-1 also boasts premium Gotoh hardware, including Magnum Lock tuners (which provide super-stable tuning) and a rock-solid T1702B tremolo bridge.
Whilst fans of Lari Basilio will be immediately drawn to the LB1, it’s also a fantastic choice if you’re looking for an elegant T-style guitar that’s primed for fluid and expressive playing.
